Whilst we are not able to give any specific timings, we are exploring the merits of ratifying the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, as a potential addition to the broad range of support measures which already exist for this vital aspect of our nation’s life. The Government keeps all such matters under review.
